    1.1 double users

    Are any of you 1.1 double users in the 200 lb range? I'll drop down to 190 or so as soon as I start getting out again. I'm considering selling my 1.7 double to cut about a half pound of pack weight. Will the 1.1 give a pretty flay lay for a 200 pounder?

    It does pretty well for a 175 pounder.

    I am just under 200 and like it better than my dbl 1.7. So much so that I sold my dbl 1.7. At 190 it will be very flat.

    The 1.1 double is great for ~200 lb. people. My holiday weight is 205 and drops to 190 during Spring - Fall. I slept great in it last night!

    Why do you like the dbl 1.1 so much better? I'm definitely in the under 200# crowd, but as I do dual-sport motorcycle camping and thus gear weight is not the big issue here, I was just thinking to get the dbl 1.7: maybe more durable...being a noob to hanging, however, what do I know? So it occurs to me to ask those with a bit more experience. Thanks!

    I've got to find out what the flat lay is, because I found my DBL 1.1 pretty comfy when I was weighing 260.
